The fence of fire!

Without rubbing of stones, gas and current,
A spark at the mind, thus small flame at the heart,
The big fire in the thought, inferno body,
Hot abuse words and violent razing actions.

Add the charcoal of abusive words,
Press the high at insulting deeds,
Behind the glass, the micro angry waves,
Unseen blazing fire fence erected.

Can't stand near it and cross over it,
Can't see through it and have peace in it,
To douse the fire, call the love fire fighters,
Spray the kind water and foam to dry the fire.

Don't let our mind to boil over,
Petite incidents of thrifty nature,
Be generous in affection to cool down,
Unseen fire boundary of fence between us.

    I am smiling reading this. After let us say a firey poem, I like to write a cool down poem.
    It maintains emotional equilibrium. The trouble with rash individuals, they lack this balance
    and fall into the trap of real violence to satisfy their emtional turmoil.
    Thoughtful poem. (Report) Reply
